Acceptance and Transformation

Learning to Dance with Life’s Problems

Normally we respond to problems with frustration and anger, but this
response actually makes the problem worse. If instead of rejecting the
situation we respond with acceptance, we give ourself the space to see
its underlying causes. It is by addressing these causes that we learn to
dance with life’s problems and the difficulties in our life become the
means for us to fulfill our deepest wishes for happiness.
